and Ann TWYNIHO (c1590-1635)
It has been brought to my attention that the following may be incorrect.
I have copied the details from other family histories and have not checked
the validity of the data for myself. At some point someone has assumed
George Estmond of Sussex was the son of John
Estmond of Dorset. When John made his will in 1645, he did mentioned
a son George, who would have been about 22 years old at the time and in an
apprenticeship, but is this sufficient to assume our George was the son of
John, or is there some other evidence?
The 1677 Visitation of Dorset notes that John's son George married an
Elizabeth they had daughters. Whereas the George in Sussex was said to
have married Mary Pitfield and they also only had
daughters. In George's will he mentioned wife Mary.

Thomas Estmond (?-1607) and

will on 17 April 1645 and probate
was granted on 10 May 1647. He died on 15 February and was buried on
17 February 1645/6/7 in Shroton, Dorset (date needs to be checked in
original registers). He was the Rector of St. Mary,
Shroton from 1613 and held a Bachelor of Divinity. Shroton is also
known as Iwerne Courtney. St. Mary's at Shroton was rebuilt in 1610
and paid for by Sir Thomas Freke.
